In this volume, Keiichi learns the story behind the Cotton Drifting Festival – it is actually a cannibalistic human sacrifice. The day after the festival, Mion starts acting very suspicious; especially concerning Keiichi handing out with her twin sister, Shion.

As the disappearances and murders begin again, Mion reveals she is heir to the demon curse of the village and is forced to fulfill the Cotton Drifting killings and has been trying to keep Keiichi safe. But is she lying? Is the demon even real?

This series… This series is weird. Are these kids trapped in hell or in a time loop cycling this curse thing over and over in different scenarios? Is just Keiichi cursed? I did notice the editions of this I’m reading are divided not only into different arcs but each arc is split between the slow set up and burst of chaos. But then everything resets. I am so confused. 3.4 out of 5.
